      With 9 miles of Electric left car tries to switch to gas but instead completely dies. Car won't re-start with electric or with gas. Chevy dealer said it needed a new starting battery. Put in brand new battery for starting. 2nd time out again with 9 miles of Electric left car dies. Has to be towed both times. Anyone have this problem or have an idea what is wrong?
      It could be that there's a problem with the main li-ion battery, which would be covered by the Voltec warranty. You may want to reach out to a Volt Adviser:

      I hope it's something simple to adjust / replace.

      Also, consider using a surge protector with your charger cable. There are whole house models available such as these:

      Hello a lightening rod would probally do more good then a surge protector. i would be very surprised if the protector is rated for strikes.I do not recall even seeing lightening rods anymore.
      One hit on googles says it usally blows the charger inside the car. I would assume It all depends on how direct the hit.

      Well,,,,, wait to see what the tech Doc says. best of luck.

      We get lots of lightening down here in Boynton beach

      Fourdoor, sorry this happened to you. It may be that your dealership can replace a part or do a reset to get everything working again. You may want to try connecting your EVSE to a surge protector or having a whole house surge protector installed (or both). Here's a well rated model: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-...House-Surge-Protector-R02-51110-SRG/202993881.
